Second full length album from Thumpermonkey Lives!
Released by Tooting Bizarre
"This is a truly remarkable record. It's not for the faint hearted and don't even attempt it unless you've had a hearty breakfast of Genesis with a side order of King Crimson, and been snacking on Primus and Tool all morning. But if, like me, you need a full injection of Yes and Magma into each testicle before you can get out of bed in the mornings, you'll shortly realise that
"Bring Me Sun For Breakfast" is so good it'll make you spunk."
"Not one of your indie-smindy post hardcore bands claiming to be progressive because they borrowed one of the easier At The Drive-In riffs, or yet another noodling post-rock copy of the Explosions in Your Emperor thing. No! This is the full on weird wired bombastic Rael in his Lighthouse in the court of crimson u-boat real big Gentle Giant, Isis deal. ... Five songs, five epics, not in terms of length (although they all feel longer than they actually are!), epic in terms of content, in terms of musical drama, light and shade."
